UK Car Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, I'm Greg (Indy-Tech).Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.Rgds Greg.
Do you have the chance of the use of a code reader to check for codes .
Even though you may not have a check engine light "ON" you may still have a knock sensor codes as on this model when this code set does not trip on the check engine light .
Now if you have all services up to-date like spark plugs ,leads etc then you may have a bad knock sensor .this will cause you a engine knock/ping .
This is a typical issue that the wiring from the knock sensor fails and not the sensor .
To gain access to the sensor you will have to remove the intake manifold .
Check for malfunction codes you most likely find a P0325 code which is the knock sensor.
If no codes then pleas eget back to me for further assistance with this issue .
Kind regards Greg
Okay no problem .
Yes this is a known problem with this Hilux there is a problem with the Injectors
Have the injectors removed and pressure tested ,around the 70.000 k mark these are known to give problem .
If injectors prove to be good have the injection pump tested and calibrated .
